I was so excited to receive an email from Natalia Bun, inviting me to guest design for Blinks of Life, using the October Kits, Cinnamon Roll and Sugar & Spice! The kits have a great mix of patterned papers and embellishments, and I loved creating with them! I completed a total of five layouts with the Kits, and wanted to stop in today, to share two of them with you.
This was actually my last layout, using the Kit and I wanted to make use of the awesome sticker sheet from October Afternoon. I decided to repeat my photo and do a photo strip look, and then place the stickers down the side of the photo strip. I cut the large title from the October Afternoon patterned paper, using my Cameo and the Selfies & Usies cut file from The Cut Shoppe.
On this layout, I wanted to create a fun look, with the diamond pattern. I cut squares from three of the patterned papers included in the Sugar & Spice Kit, and added them to the background paper. I wanted to keep my title and embellishments clustered around the photo, to keep from covering up the diamond background. And I used the pops of Red, to draw the eye around the page.
If you haven't had a chance to check out Blinks of Life, make sure you stop by for a visit and take a look around! There are some amazing projects in the Gallery from the Design Team and other October Guest Designers! And you can take a look at the Cinnamon Roll and Sugar & Spice Kits!
